Cruisin with friends

January 29th-February 2nd:

Amber has some fantastic travel agent sisters, and they arranged a cruise for some of their high school classmates to get away, relax and reconnect. 

We started our adventure in New Orleans at Hotel Monteleone, had a great Cajun dinner and explored New Orleans. 

The next morning we boarded the Carnival Elation for lots of great dining, music, comedy and fun!

The Carnival Elation took us from New Orleans to Cozumel and back and while in Cozumel, Phyllis arranged for a private catamaran trip with snorkeling.

What an awesome trip with lifetime friends!

New Years Eve in Florence

Florence, Alabama - not Italy

Bryan and I were unable to arrange to be in the same state for New Years Eve, due to work schedules, so I headed to Florence to ring in the new year with Amber, Bam and Connor. 

We celebrated with a delicious dinner and awesome southern rock music at Flobama.

Happy 2015!

Hap Hap Happy Holidays

Annual shopping trip to Phillips Toy Mart

Bryan flew up from Florida and we spent the holidays with family and friends. 
Morgan, Anna Belle and Emri

The Hodges were out of town and graciously offered us their house (and doggies) so we could have plenty of room to celebrate. 

Chassi and Josh, Alex and Jenni
Thomas and Hall celebrations!

We are very blessed and it was a super holiday!

Thanksgiving in Florida

Jenni, Alex and I drove to Florida to spend Thanksgiving with Bryan. 

We also fit in a trip to Universal while we were there! 
Entering Diagon Alley
It tastes exactly as you would expect.

Happy Birthday, Anzel!

A year ago I was working in El Paso when this little tyke was born. He is such a cutie! 

JT Hodges at City Winery

City Winery is a new venue in Nashville. We jumped at the chance to see JT play there. 
Great venue - awesome show!!


Bryan flew up for Halloween and we had a great time with the kids!

We also fit in a night with friends at Mafiosos Pizza.

Time to start a new chapter, but first some fun!


Diagon Alley at Universal

I will begin my new job back in Nashville this month, so Josh flew down to drive me and my things back. We decided to spend a day at Universal to relax and have some fun before the 10 hour drive. 

You have to stop for a Flaming Moe and Duff when in Springfield!
Bryan and Josh tackled Rip Ride Rockit. I was too scared! 

I yam what I yam!

August brings changes...

There have been several changes at work lately and it made me feel a little unsure of the future so I started looking around. I've loved my training job and especially working remotely from Florida, but it was time for a change. So...I interviewed and took a position with a company back in Nashville. This isn't a remote job, so I'll be moving back and Bryan will begin looking for an opening back at Verizon Nashville.

Please keep us in your prayers during this transition. 

Dexa Scan results

The gift that chemo gave: Osteoporosis. Boo! My bones have not improved, in fact they are a bit worse. They've adjusted my meds and I need to up my weight bearing exercise.
